No, until the baby is born, there are no rights to file for custody. Once the baby is born and your daughter consents, the process should not be difficult. If your daughter does not consent, it will be more difficult.

I don't believe that the court would approve a petition for custody of an unborn child. My guess is that you will have to wait until the child is born. After the child is born, you could file a petition for third party custody. You mention that you have permission of the mother. It would likely also take permission for the father. There is also a potential need for a paternity action. Finally, because the mother is a minor, the court would likely require the appointment of an independent guardian for the mother before it would honor any "permission" from her.

You may file a request for guardianship once the child is born. The father will need to be notified that you intend to take guardianship and you will need to allege that it is necessary and in the best interests of the child to be granted guardianship of the child. You may wish to consult with an attorney to assist you in pursuing guardianship.

Custody is an all or nothing thing. You cannot file for custody of an unborn but once your grandchild arrives you can take custody of the child. You may not agree in advance to return the child to the mother. The question at that time will be is the return in the best interest of the child.
